Lisa Bridge, CEO of Ben Bridge Jeweler, will serve a second consecutive one-year term as president of the board of directors for the American Gem Society (AGS).
The organization announced Bridge as the head for the 2023 to 2024 term at the organization’s annual Conclave in Louisville, Kentucky, earlier this month, it said in a recent statement. Bridge has had a spot on AGS’s board for the past 11 years.
Alexis Padis, president of Padis Jewelry, will again take over as president-elect, while Bryan Moeller, manager of R.F. Moeller Jeweler, will continue to serve as secretary.
Other members of the executive committee announced at the Conclave also remained the same as the prior year. They include William Farmer, Jr., as senior adviser; Larry Rickert as treasurer and chair for the finance, audit and legal committee; John Carter as chair of the AGS laboratories advisory committee and the gemological sciences committee; and Maria Brown as chair of the Young Titleholders Committee.
The one new addition to the board is David Mazer, who was elected as a director-at-large. Mazer works as director of sales and training and as a diamond buyer for Marks Jewelers in Montgomeryville, Pennsylvania.
